that saying, fine, we're going to extend this debt ceiling. we're going to pass something for a short period of time but in the interim we better get sot cuts. >> you're talking about what the house republicans put out today. isn't -- i hate to use the term -- kicking the can down the road. isn't this just taking us back to where we were before, delaying the inevitable? >> yes, but it's not just about the debt ceiling. this is one of the reasons the inauguration comes at such a dreary times. we just had this boring fight. >> i thought it was exciting . >> that's not exciting lemplet -- that's not exciting. >> he clearly has a different idea of exciting. >> there was a fight about the sequester and the regular roll budget. the debt ceiling is one where real ugly consequences were likely to happen. an they were likely to get blamed. they want to move that to the last of fights. . it's still going to be the same fight over how do you distribute resources in the time of scarcity? >> president obama stared them down on this. he said i'm not going to negotiate. a i'm not going -- this is a separat

with skepticism. house republicans on friday announced a plan to extend the debt ceiling deadline until mid-april. >> we will extend the debt limit until the timeline when you have a budget and a road map so you stop digging yourself in the hole. part of not having the budget is what's gotten us into this problem in the first place. >> of course, at stake here is the credibility of the u.s. economy and the united states can befall to the national debt and it does not increase the bar. joining me now is the political staff writer, art shapiro, white house correspondent for mpr. good saturday to both of you. >> thank you for having us. >> cheryl, we'll start with you. this new plan pushes the threat of default until mid-april and contingent as congressman mccarty is contingent on the fact that the house and senate will have to both pass budgets and that hasn't happened in some time and congressional salaries also on the line. is this a viable strategy? >> i think it's an interesting strategy. if you're a senate democratic staffer and you just watched house republican leaders come out of the r

to extend the debt ceiling for three months. and if they ultimately send a clean debt ceiling increase to the president with no strings attached, that would be great. but what they need to do is they need to do it where they give long-term certainty for our economy, for our recovery so that we can focus on job creation and getting the economy turned around. that is not what they are proposing, though. >> how do you know the republicans will come back in 90 days and do the exact same thing they did this time? >> i would expect that it would just be continuing to do it in short increments. if they can even get it -- get the support among their caucus members for another three-month extension. what they're doing here is they're saying, okay, we're going to wait for a budget from the senate. the budget from the senate better have the cuts that we're expecting. so essentially they're basically trying to extend the time in which they tie a debt ceiling increase to spending cuts. and as speaker -- as leader pelosi said, that's a little too cute by half. >> wall street reacted well to the news

and just came out with word they want to extend the debt ceiling for about two, three months because they don't -- they want to have a battle over spending with the president but not over the possibility of default. they know that would tank the economy. it would rile up the financial marks. i think they'll kick that down -- markets. i think they'll kick that down the road and have a fight over sequestration. one way or another they'll have a logger head with the president when it comes to cuts and dramatic spending. >> your power play of the week? >> reverend ruiz leon, the church of the president. i've lived in washington 30 plus years and never been inside the church, driven past it plenty. beautiful place. presidents have gone there since 1816. president obama will go there for his preinaugural worship service monday. >> speaking of inauguration, big plans for ask you? are you attending any balls? >> thank god, no. i'm way too old for that. the inaugural ball has the best name and the worst reality of anything i know in washington, but i will cover the inaugural ceremony. i'm ver

on extending the debt ceiling for at least a three-month period. is this any signs of hope in terms of cooperation or more maneuvering? >> i think this unfortunately more a sign that republicans realize it was horribly damaging to them to continue to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states. now, it still does that because they are really perpetrating colossal uncertainty by proposing only to extend the debt ceiling increase by three months. i mean in a fragile recovery like the one we have we need to have certainty, we need to pay our bills, and we need to send president obama a clean debt ceiling increase. >> you also will need to have a budget in place in order to come to that debt ceiling debate as the republicans have laid it out at this point and you're also going to be dealing with the deficit and all of the other issues. so are you basically saying you don't think anything's changed here? >> no. i think the republicans have realized it's a political problem and a real problem if we jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united s

a little mini cave on the debt ceiling, and it looks like they are going to be willing to extend the debt ceiling for three months with which is the cover of the new york times this morning, and what is that about? what is happening? >> well, it seems they are trying to line up their opposition to the president, this debt ceiling trying to line it up with two other big economic situations that we are going to be faced, that is to continue resolution that we common call the c.r. to keep the government running which expires the first of march. and then of course, we have the so-called, i don't know what to call it, but it is not the cliff, but it is not what i would call it. >> the curb. >> yes, the curb beginning to kick in, and we need to work with that and i think that they are trying to line it up to camouflage whatever they may do, which i think will be to vote to let the debt ceiling go up. >> okay. so i should not see this as we say in the black church, a "come to jesus" moment, but in washington they say we are outmanned on this, so we will have to give the president his way, becaus

dollar of the debt ceiling goes to spending of that same amount. they've conceded they're going to extend the debt ceiling without any cuts. but that moves us to now where government funding expires on march 31th. at that point, we'll have a s w showdown in which republicans insist on spending cuts. there will still be some kind of fight. we will have a clock to some kind of catastrophic event that could happen, like we had in december. but it would not be with the debt ceiling. the republicans seem to have conceded to the obama. they're worried that obama has the stronger hand on that particular issue. >> what do you think the gop strategy is here, shirra? >> i think they realize that their caucus cannot handle another divisive fight. there are too many factions within the caucus. they don't want another public fight about it. so they're kicking the can down the road and hope things will be more in their favor by then. >> i spoke to some folks on the set this morning, one of whom said they think it's going to be kick the can down the road again, even after this three-month reprieve. do

, in williamsburg, virginia, today, house republicans have agreed to take up the plan next week to extend the debt ceiling with some conditions. i think that's boring and uninspiring. let's go to the source of this cnbc contributor robert costa. . . i think it's boring, boring, boring. you tell why this is a great. are not attached to this proposal. very three months. let me say this, from all my reporting down there in eastern virginia default on the debt. so what they're trying to do is just punt on the debt ceiling and focus the spending cut fight on the upcoming continuing resolution to fund the government. >> i didn't hear any focus on spending cuts. and i didn't hear any focus on the sequester. and i'm looking at rasmussen polls that show me that the public wants across-the-board spending cuts. and you and i both know the republican base is hungry for that after getting hosed in that high tax bill. >> i think you're a bit off, larry, respectfully in that republicans i think want to have these spending cuts. but they're picking a strategic battle. and you could be right in saying they're pick

the debt ceiling vote three months, is that a good sign? >> i don't like to see anything with -- what do we call that with-in the grocery store when they want to attach something to it? >> two for one sale? >> it might be a two for one sale. republicans want to increase their advantage being at the table with the sequester coming up weather the regular budget that's coming up. look, i understand the games the republicans are playing but the game the american people want them to play is to play fair, to make sure that the rich pay their fair share but also the deep cuts do not disproportionately hurt those people still trying to stand up after the worst economic recession since the great depression. >> we'll have much more. we'll also show a very famous picture of donna brazile. >> 1993. i was an inaugural official. how the mighty have fallen. >> oh, my goodness. stand by. much more with anna, donna, john and i as we continue to talk politics as well as mark this presidential inauguration weekend. officemax has exactly the ink... your business needs... at prices that keep you...out of the re
